Team17 has started a huge Worms Rumble weekend announcing the cross-play beta for PlayStation 4 and Steam is available now until Monday, 9th November. The open beta includes a previously unseen map, Transforming Towers, which sees part of the Tower transform into a giant robot worm, as well as Battle Royale modes Last Worm Standing and Last Squad Standing, joining Deathmatch.
The open beta features an array of Worms arsenal including Sheep Launchers, Sentry Turrets, Plasma Blasters, Grapple Guns and Jetpacks.
We’re extremely excited to throw open the doors and give players a glimpse into Worms Rumble ahead of its release next month. Worms is a huge franchise that means a lot to us, and what better way to celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary than with a title that revitalises the formula with real-time combat while retaining plenty of that classic charm we’ve come to love over years. Players will even get their hands on some iconic returning weaponry during their time in the beta!– Chris Coates, Head of Studio, Team17
